"Our organizing committee has been busily planning for this event since last year and we are so excited for the first pitch to be thrown Monday morning," said local organizing committee chair Carol Mayne. "It’s going to be a great week of competitive women’s softball and I encourage everyone to come out and support PEI’s host team, the Remax Ravens, as they take on the rest of the county."
The Remax Ravens' opening game takes place Monday at 12:00pm at Central Field Complex against the BC Renegades 98. The opening ceremony will take place later that evening at 6:30pm at Central Field Complex (diamond 1), prior to the Raven’s second game of the day against regional rival Moncton Rebels.
